3 Thought Thursday : 17rd January

Here is your weekly dose of three things that have impressed me during the week or that I am contemplating. 

My favourite book of this week - 
I feel so fortunate to have spent time with the author of this book, Ocean Robbins, on a number of occasions. He is an incredible human being and has an amazing story. Ocean Robbins’ grandfather founded Baskin-Robbins (the ice cream company). His father, John Robbins, grew up with an ice cream cone shaped swimming pool (can you believe it) but then walked away from the family company and fortune to live for over a decade on an island in Canada on only $1,000 a year while writing bestselling books like Diet for a New America and becoming a world renowned health advocate. He has been one of my heroes and health mentors for most of my life.

Now, Ocean is on a mission to transform the industrialized food culture into one that celebrates and supports healthy people and a healthy planet. And he’s about to release an amazing new book, titled 31-Day Food Revolution: Heal Your Body, Feel Great, and Transform Your World.

I've been super lucky and got to preview 31-Day Food Revolution, and I think it’s one of the must-read books of 2019. You'll see on the link that he some seriously awesome fans including Paul McCartney, Tony Robbins, Dr Susan Peirce Thompson and Dean Ornish. The best part is Ocean is offering an amazing collection of high-valued bonus resources, worth more than $100, with every pre-order. So have a look and see why Ocean is literally a rock star in the health industry.

My favourite article of the week - 
The money, job, marriage myth: are you happy yet? The author of this article, Paul Dolan, is a professor of behavioural science at the London School of Economics. He is an expert on the measurement of happiness and acts as a wellbeing adviser to the government and a number of NGOs. It's a great article. I particularly liked this line: "To be happier we need to move from a culture of “more please” to one of “just enough”."
